    Travis dismissed fan theories suggesting their relationship was a hoax with a laugh, calling them "crazy." He emphasized that such notions were unfounded and brushed them off as mere speculation. Travis and Swift's romance began to ignite in September 2023, when the singer made her first appearance at a Chiefs game. 

    Before this, Travis had attended one of Swift's The Eras Tour performances earlier in the year, where he playfully joked about giving her his phone number. Travis also disclosed that he crafted a friendship bracelet, reminiscent of those popular among Swift's fans, which included his contact information. Regrettably, he didn't have the chance to present it to her that evening.

    Swift also addressed the public nature of her relationship with Travis, highlighting its contrast with her more private past relationships. She emphasized that being public about their relationship means supporting each other openly, regardless of who else is around them indicating their shared commitment to each other amidst public scrutiny.

    She expressed that they didn't want to go to great lengths to pretend they weren't a couple, as they take pride in supporting each other openly. Kelce's team, the Kansas City Chiefs, clinched the Super Bowl victory on February 11th.
